Lets unmask the confusion about masks

"I'm fought macedo. Sitting in for jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jennifer mcdonald is a doctor physical medicine and rehabilitation in ottawa. And is one of the five hundred signatories on a letter calling federal and provincial governments to seriously address the aerosol transmission of covid nineteen. Hi dr mcdonald. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me so. I'm really curious about how this letter came about. Can you tell us a little more. Would its goals are and what the purpose was of writing and sending it to all the governments sure so it came about actually for me on my end. I was actually on maternity leave. And was reading up on the science of covid nineteen transmission and notice that there was quite a bit of controversy even between a leading experts and wanted to see more interdisciplinary collaboration. So as a rehabilitation doctor we are experts in interdisciplinary collaboration. And i thought while i am by no means an expert in nineteen i could bring my expertise in that collaborative approach to bring these disciplines and hopefully come to some sort of consensus on the science of transition. So that's how we got writing this letter and bringing these people together. We have doctors. Relevant scientists occupational health and safety experts as well as engineers as a part of the team. We're sort of like a loose coalition all with interest in promoting this route of transmission which is air assault or airborne transmission. So that was the goal of the is to ask our country as a whole as well as each province to better acknowledged the importance of aerosol transmission as well as to implement appropriate measures to combat it so clearly. This wasn't happening because you had to write about it. I i noted in the in the letter that you you mentioned or all signatories mentioned that international scientists came together to i bring up this issue. In july of twenty twenty and yet nothing has been done in canada since and the public's understanding of transmission seems to have become murkier and honestly more confusing. So i'm wondering if you can explain how the virus is transmitted is it. Airborne is transmitted through aerosols. And and what's the difference really Yes and i think that's kind of the heart of the issue is that term airborne and it's very contentious amongst some experts in public health as well as infection prevention and control. They reserve that term for diseases that have ironclad proof that they transmit through the air at very far distances in after a long period of time so an example is musil's that We have proof that it can be transmitted between faraway rooms and if a person left that room in that someone else came in an hour later they would get infected so basically the they're not wanting to use that term to describe covid nineteen since we know that in the majority of cases people are getting transmitted at close contact so when they are With somebody close to them so in terms of how covid nineteen can be transmitted. There's sort of three modes that we hear about in. That's full night's droplets and airborne or aerosol transmission so in terms of how someone can get infected by code nineteen truffaut mites. That would be if an example of that would be you. Wipe your eyes. You have copa. Nineteen and then you shake someone's hand and then that person wipes their ira reps their nose and they get infected So that's off. We focused on hand hygiene now. Interestingly full might trent full night's transmission is not found to be the main mechanism. And that's actually recognized by most of the big public health bodies that yes it's likely important but it's not the main issue so then we get to droplets and aerosols so you can think of a large droplet at transmission as a large saliva canon ball or spitball coming at you and basically that's protected from the person off when they're coughing or sneezing and would land on your eye or on your mouth and therefore Make entry into your body. And infect those cells in the nose or mouth or is in the upper respiratory tract and the thought is over time. It might migrate down into down into the lungs causing more dangerous viral pneumonia. What has been ignored in medicine. I must as dr. I was not taught about this. Possibility is the idea of aerosols being important at close ranges well so a good example is to think of smoke and if someone smoking and you're standing next to them and they breathe a big plume of smoke directly in your face while you're gonna inhale quite a bit of that smoke in it's coined probably to make you cough and turn your head away. So imagine aerosol says smoke and they're going to be most concentrated when you're close together so eric. Short range aerosol transmission or airborne transmission at close contact with. Someone is still an important vote of transmission. It's not really being discussed. And so basically the difference between airborne and air assault is more semantics. Actually i think it's actually easier if we use the term airborne to describe it 'cause the public that makes sense to

Men have vanished on Vancouver Island. What happened to them?

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Laura palmer is a veteran reporter and broadcaster rate. Now she is the host of island crime which launches season two on the frequency. Podcast network on monday. Hello laura hey jordan. Why don't we start before we get to the general topic violent crime and and how you ended up in this business in the first place who are the gone boys so In in this series. I focus on half a dozen stories. there are more but I'm i'm focusing on these guys. For a few reasons. They are men between the ages of fourteen to fifty who have disappeared in recent years from vancouver island and when i say disappeared i mean. They're just gone. They all have a few things in common. And one of the main things is that they have some measure of disability or trauma in their lives and they all are known to be not if not exactly loners guys who spend a lot of time alone and spend a lot of that time walking or biking along the highway on vancouver island and so while there are a number of other men currently missing on vancouver island. These are the men that i focused on in the series men. Who have those things in common. Why did you tell the stories of those men in particular. So i learned. Crime is something. I started last year and in the first season of violent crime i was telling the story of a young indigenous women who had gone missing from the community of nanaimo in two thousand in two and in my research on her story i joined a number of different groups here on the island of that are focused on crime and missing people and that sort of thing and once i was part of these communities. I noticed number of people asking the question. Why isn't anyone talking about the missing men. Where are the missing men. And this was something. I saw popping up in virtually every group i was part of and so of course i was curious about those stories and when i started digging around i found that sure enough there were these cases out there that had received really very little attention there. Was you know one or two stories that had been written about these cases. But you know with some of these men. There hadn't even been a single story done and some of these guys aren't even Featured on the rcmp's website. So i felt like there hasn't been much attention. Paid and i guess the other thing i would say on. This point is You know i. I was a journalist in vancouver in the late. Nineteen ninety s when women were going missing from vancouver's downtown eastside. And i remember a similar kind of thing happening where people from the downtown eastside community family and friends of these women. Were you know trying to get people to pay attention and what was happening. Was the you know the police the authorities were saying. Look these women. are you know leading lifestyles. That are chaotic. And there's nothing unusual about them being missing being off the grid and so police the public the media were all kind of not

What does it mean when water is traded as a commodity?

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Diane dupont is a professor in the economics department at brock university. She is the co author of through our fingers how handed fails to capture the value of its top asset. Hello professor dupont hydrogen. How are you. i'm doing well. Can you start. Maybe for people to whom this came as kind of a shock when the news broke a little while ago. How did we end up with water. Futures trading on stock market so as you mentioned Water futures started trading on the chicago mercantile exchange in the us in early january and Just let me explain. What if auto futures contract is of. It's this visit a an agreement to buy or sell an asset at a specified future date at a pre specified price and typically. What happens with future contracts. Not water contracts will come back to that set. What would typically happen with. Enormous futures contract is at the future date. The exchange takes place the seller pays the price to the buyer and the buyer hands over the asset typically physical asset to the cellar with water futures. This isn't what happens. Water is not physically transacted on this water futures exchange rather water futures contracts are settled financially in other words dollars exchange at the end of the period so no actual physical transfer water from buyer to a seller takes place. And i think it's important that people understand the distinction between this water futures market where these contracts which are essentially contracts in prices and how prices are going to change in the future Take place so distinction between trading in futures contracts and trading in actual water. And they're different. Yeah i'd love to know how it works. And when the headlines say you know water is now being traded in futures on the what water are we talking about. So we're not talking about any water. We're talking about dollars. Well we are talking about riots. We are talking about what so. Let me let me explain there in fact if you will. This is a simplification in fact to kind of markets. Exchanges that are taking place on the one hand. There is the real physical trading in water. Which has been by the way taking place in california for over thirty years so so water actually traits physically in california and this is in fact the the underlying physical market that is being reflected in the the water futures contracts that we just spoke about so for over thirty years. We've had water trading taking place in california and what we do that it's because there's a lot of variability in water availability over the season often mismatch between what is needed and win at wear and so what has happened is that we have in the us california sellers who are willing to essentially transfer a physical quantity of the water over which they have rights to fire. Essentially there are groups of people in california who've had water rights or essentially entitlements to use water pre nineteen fourteen so these are very special kinds of water rights and they basically give the owner the right to take water on on their land now there are other types of water rights in california call. Ripe -tarian rights and these are rights to use the flow of water. That passes over your land so if your land is adjacent to a stream to a river to lake quite often people have these so called ripe perry and writes in california recognizes seats so these two kinds of rights essentially that people have to effectively sell water so their water sellers there are water buyers and as i said for over thirty years. We've actually had trades that have been taking place between buyers and sellers now the volume actual trading is pretty small. It's about four percent of all of the water that's used in the state so and most of the trading that takes place is within the same county or region so th water isn't going very far away from where it

With no Keystone XL pipeline, whats Albertas Plan B?

"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jason marcus off is the alberta correspondent for maclean's magazine. He joins us to try to explain what happens now. Hello jason wish me luck so in the couple of weeks now. Since joe biden has taken office and immediately cancelled the keystone excel permit. How his albert reacted. Not well as could be. Expected is opposed the way i'd put it. You know jason kenney got elected with a three word slogan not a phrase three word slogan jobs economy pipelines pipelines was the big punctuation point on that. And it's been a big issue for help out bird government and the economy for a long time that we don't have this big glut of oil sands and oil were producing and nowhere really to shit or no way to ship it out of there. That's been a big drag on alpern awale prices and benjamin prices for quite a while now keystone excel has been in the works for basically a decade now uh since they applied for this project as transcanada energies into long that they're no longer called transplanted called tc energy. Canada became less of an on vogue term to use in the names and this this has become the gun of the poster child. The original poster child for environmental activism and push back against oil industry pipelines The americans have been pushing back on this south from the left for quite a while. obama killed in two thousand fifteen. He decided to not allow permit. Donald trump brought it back in two thousand seventeen and it was no surprise. Almost anybody that Biden was going to kill it in in twenty twenty one Once he got nauseated and yet it was portrayed as a major disappointment and huge letdown for the government and to some extent for canada. Yeah i was gonna ask if obama killed this thing once already And it's really unpopular with the american left. Why didn't it seem like we were more prepared for this. You know i played a clip In the intro of kenny reacting on the day of biden's inauguration but surely as soon as it became clear he won. This was coming down the pipeline. There was an optimism and almost. I'd say an idealism about how a biden administration might act. People knew well the the history and the baggage that this project had that it was killed by obama when joe biden was the vice president of course and this had become this iconic push for the environmental movement did it it had that totemic status and yet there were people within the canadian government and especially the alberta government who thought they crashed an argument Through which this would work and that had several layers to it one Was the fact that there were many union. Jobs in america And in canada on the go for this there were was going to produce jobs at a time when jobs are scarce and these economies need these construction industrial and infrastructure jobs and they were hoping that would appeal to the lunch bucket. Union leanings of joe biden in his administration. There was also an argument that this was not the same project and the ever loyal sent throughout the same oil sands that they were in twenty fifteen when this project was rejected by obama or before twenty fifty back when there was much less of an issue of oil sands cleaning up their act like there is now out the oil sands have worked their best to lower the carbon intensity and the carbon footprint of their projects and they were going Tc energy the company that was going to build. This pipeline was talking about making their project. Carbon zero carbon neutral net zero through various means the actual pipeline construction itself. Not the oil flowing through it and there was also gonna talk Giving indigenous which oppose this quite often in the states Some equity stake in it so there were various ways. The canadians albertans thought they could thread the needle and make this an appeal peeling project. Make it some kind of package. Deal with other green initiatives that That canada and biden would go through jointly but the legacy of this project the baggage of this project mistakes the politics surrounding this whole saga from obama to trump to biden Made it an easy win for For biden to kill despite all the positives that this project could have given

Homeless in the winter, in a pandemic. A deadly combination.

"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jacob launch is a reporter and writer based in toronto who looked into exactly how deadly this winter can be for vice. Hello dick how are you. I'm doing well thanks I'm glad you're looking at this topic. I know this is not a usual winter for people who live on the streets. Why don't you just start By telling me about the man who who started the story for you a who is raphael. Andrei and what happened to him. So i don't know much about rafael. A been to the shelter where he stays. I have spoken to some people there. And the general sense that i got was that In this happens with a lot of folks who pass away in the street You know is that. They're very caring very helpful. People the communities that they are part of they love being part of anti in this case Mr andre was certainly a friend of the shelter in the shelter is a friend of him. But because of the covid nineteen That was given for the shelter to shut down He was forced to sleep at side. Instead of being able to stay in stores following the death of an indigenous homeless man on the streets of montreal his body was found in a portable toilet. Just meters away from a shelter that had been forced to close its overnight services because a pandemic restrictions and it's it's not uncommon to you know many people i talked to who are harm reduction workers Or otherwise work with homeless people It's definitely not uncommon to For homeless folks who are using drugs to go into a porta potty because usually it is the only sort of Private space that they have available to them Albeit it is not a a healthier or safe place to be. Can you explain just a bit. Maybe about the circumstances surrounding his death before we move on to to the bigger issue you mentioned that he was part of a shelter community but he was not in the shelter. Why not an and how do those rules. Impact shelter yes so essentially. What happened was shelter had had an outbreak of covid nineteen in december. And so they were told that they could reopen the beginning of the year but they would not be able to stay open past nine thirty presumably this because people would be saying sleeping indoors spending more time indoors together Maybe during the day to coming in and out and there's less There's less of a chance of a spread of the virus. That seems to be what the municipal health authority believes So there was that nine thirty curfew way. It should be noted that it's this Nine thirty closing time is different than the provincial curfew that is currently Enforcing a being enforced in quebec and there has been calls to the premier Francois ago To give homeless people in exemption from this curfew. I don't know if that would have made a difference here. But i certainly think that. Some of the recent lockdown measures are Are certainly backfiring much. More than they did during the first wave on people who are homeless or otherwise experiencing some form of Lack of shelter right. Well as you mentioned. There's a pretty hard curfew in quebec right now in and it does apply to homeless people as well. What are homeless people supposed to do in a curfew that orders them off the streets so for my understanding that the general the german general message being sent by the premier by the police is that homeless people will be fine. They're not going to be ticketed. Although we've seen some instances were homeless. People have been ticketed. This this happens all the time. Even pre covid homeless people being ticketed for sleeping inside of bus shelters or being ticketed for sleeping on the street corner. So it's not really a covid specific thing but certainly the only people probably going to be outside during a curfew are people who don't have a home to stay in and so right now. Francois's logo the premier has said that there is no exemptions He said that his concern with allowing exemption for homeless people is that it would create incentive for people to break curfew in then saying that they're homeless When approached by police officer. Which i think there are a number of reasons why. That's not a strong argument. I mean you know someone. S i'm sure someone who's going to their friends house or partying or whatever they're doing you know trying to do after eight pm is not going to go through the trouble of disguising themselves as a homeless person That's the that's the premier said that that that they would disguise themselves as homeless people so It's i think it's a bit absurd. Also the other issue here which is that. This is coming at a time when a lot of people are not Other encampments everywhere because of not being able to stay in shelters but more and more people are kind of facing homelessness a now in the at least here in toronto in in terms of the frontline workers that i've spoken to They're meeting a lot of first timers. A lot of people who've never been homeless before some people who are in their mid to late twenties And for those kind of people especially these situations are are really destabilizing because You know you're you're trying to figure out how to get by day today And you're also now trying to avoid running into problems with the law running into problems with perhaps other folks that are outside so it.

How can Canada stop the growth of hate groups?

"For many canadians who have stared in horror at events happening to the south of us over the past four weeks or for years. There is a comforting thought that arrives immediately afterwards. Thank god we're in canada or maybe better phrased thank god. That could never happen here but could it. The united states right now is a unique mix of anger guns conspiracy theories white supremacy and abject poverty and all of that has bubbled over the past few months to create scenes. That the whole world will never forget yes. America's recipe might be unique but canada already has most of those ingredients in abundance. And we haven't done much to solve the problems driving any of this kind of anger. Though doesn't explode overnight. It takes individual people time to arrive at the mixture of hatred and hopelessness. That's needed to turn rhetoric into action. So today's question is not really can happen here. It's what can we do to stop it from happening here. And of that applies to governments and politicians and two police forces but it also applies to you and me and to anyone who wants to believe. The canada really is different. Because if it is it's only because we all work to make it that way. I'm jordan keith. Rawlings describes the big story. Shaquille chaudhry is the co founder of animal leadership. He is also the author of deep diversity overcoming us versus them. Hello shaquille jordan. Why don't you just take me back a week ago. And i know There must have been all sorts of things going through your head as you watched the events leading up to and including the storming of the us capital. You know what's going through. Your head is as somebody who spends his career dedicated to racism and social justice issues shocked at the images and then not surprised given the patterns and the trends that have been at play. What do you mean by that. The election of trump has been a time of absolutely unprecedented dislocation and kookiness in the political. Front i mean we had rob ford here in toronto and we thought that was bad. But he was more of a harbinger of the kind of right wing. Populism that has been sweeping across the western world and trump is the has been the most toxic version of that and so we've been seeing escalating violence We've been seeing congress in And and the senate deadlocked being not particularly helpful to anybody and that level of polarization actually didn't start with trump. that's actually been happening for forty years. It's it's been actually building since the reagan era since the eighties when neoliberalism and the economic model that basically has has wages for the average person stagnate over four decades and yet we are making our economies making. You know three four five times. What it was both in canada and the us What it was in the eighties and yet people aren't feeling bad. The rich have become richer. The poor become poorer and that might sound like some kind of leftist cliche but the is is that ten years ago a research team led by peter turkson in the us predicted that by two thousand twenty the us and many parts of the western world. We're going to be at quote unquote peak violence. And so the trends have been at play and the key driver of their research has been income inequality and so the trends have been building and today peter church in his team would say that that the us and the environment in the us over. The last four years is similar to the environment in just before the french revolution in france and just before the civil war the united states so these trends have been have been playing out. And i've been. I've been really researching a lot about authoritarianism. Because i work with issues around polarization and racial polarization and an integral conflict. And so i've been looking at this or the last few years and just watching this build up and build up and knowing that it was something big was going to happen and we knew it enough that we actually scheduled a two day conference which is in fact on the twenty first and twenty second january after inauguration day because we just assumed that something was going to happen.

Can we build 15-minute cities where we live?

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Alex zekovic is a staff columnist and the architecture critic at the global mail. Hello alex hey jordan. Why don't we start. I was gonna say with a simple definition. But but maybe it's not that simple. But what is the fifteen minutes city. Where does the concept come from. And what does it describe. So the idea is actually an old idea It goes back at least fifty years in the world of city planning and really it hearkens back to previous models of cities built before the car and the basic idea. Is that everything you need for. Daily living is within walking distance of your home so the idea is not a new one. The rhetoric or the phrase of fifteen minutes city was popularized by the mayor of paris. Over the last few years. I need. I'll go Because she is interested in pursuing the fifteen minutes city returning peres into as much as possible. A fifteen minute city so. This is kind of a familiar idea. That has fresh relevance today. How do you define it for analysis purposes. When you're looking to see whether a certain city or neighborhood would qualify so there are a bunch of different definitions of the term and the one that paris uses actually includes workplaces or generally tries to include workplaces with other things. If you include workplaces this becomes a little bit trickier because trying to find to link up. Everyone's home and everyone's workplace in a large city is very complex. The more familiar and lord sort of less controversial definition is that you have the necessities of daily living within walking distance of home for the article. I did for the global mail with some colleagues a little while ago. We used a measurement called amenity density developed by statistics canada and see 'em each see and that defines it as having a grocery store a pharmacy and a public transit stop within one kilometer and having a daycare a primary school and a library within one and a half kilometers. And then there's a larger circle for health facility and larger circle for places of employment. So you know the least the most straightforward way is to say you know. Pick up a prescription go shopping. Be able to catch a bus or train. You should be able to do all of this things within roughly a ten minute walk of where you are. Why is that set up so desirable. I'm sorry if that sounds like an obvious question but just you know what does it impact. Well yeah i mean it is. It sounds really straightforward. Because when we think of our cultural ideas of what a city is or how people should live. I mean you. Think of sesame street It seems easy but the fact is that most people in north america don't have that at all. I mean the large majority of people in canada as is also true in the united states live in what planners will call car oriented suburbs or car-oriented places. If you have that then you know you. Effectively are limited to being able to survive comfortably to having a car. If you don't have a car to available to do those basic things you know your life becomes much more complex you effectively become a second class citizen and this is obviously -cations for youth and teenagers. It has obvious implications for anyone with disabilities And and there's a strong overlap of course between people with disabilities and seniors but You know this is a very large in growing issue for many canadians. Many north americans. Who are egypt in places where they need to have cars and may not always be able to

"Are listening is because you are here. Richard is here because he's coming to Atlanta. On November 21st. You can see him in person. You're going to be at the franchise show. Which is going to be at the Cobb Galleria Center. It's going to be live you, khun go. That's going to be social distancing.

Well, basically, you know, there's going to be all types of Franchising available there to peruse and find out if it's something that maybe you want to get into. I specifically I'm going to be Representing service to surface. Keith, who started that company is a good friend of mine. And so I've decided to, uh, kind of get into business with him a little bit. We used his products and his services. Our garage re had probably guessed 12 15 times and I got to know him as a person. He's a great guy. He's you know, got this service to surface business that he's starting franchise, and it's doing really well. I think the trick to it is it's all different types of fourth floor servicing. You know if you want to stay in it if you want, Teo Stamp it if you want, Teo put down the poxy codings and all that kind of stuff, And what makes him a little bit different is he also Owns the products themselves and creates those himself. So you know he's not going somewhere and buying someone else's product and put a sticker on the can and calling it Hiss. You know he's researched it and made these products. To be the best that they are in the business, So the surface to surface is something I can put on my garage floor, right? You can use it on anything but definitely the garage floor. We're working on coming out with a kind of a garage. Uh, surface kit for the do it yourself at home. That you know where they have 23 or four car garage that everything comes in one kid that they could basically resurface the garage floor and not only protected but also non skid it in Be able to wipe up any spills.

Porn and the Pandemic: A study in adaptability

"You might have seen the joke. And it is still mostly a joke going around the Internet. Another one of millions of jobs around world is lost to this pandemic and person who lost it whether they work in hospitality or media government or whatever takes to social media and with a rueful tone says ow well. I guess it's time to start my only fans account and people laugh. But only a little because another job has been lost and this year sucks. If. There are winners and twenty twenty though. Only fans is a big one. Like so much on the Internet it was a website created to allow people to connect with one another. and its technology offered a chance for creators. To monetize their fans by letting them subscribed to their feeds for a monthly fee exclusive content. And like so much on the Internet that technology was immediately used to make pornography. And really, all this couldn't have come at a better time not only was everyone stock at home all the mainstream pornography studios were shuttered for health reasons and all the performers needed work. So they went to work for themselves on only fans. So what has all this done to a porn industry that is constantly changing? His this next iteration, fleeting or permanent where is the line now between the mainstream pornography industry and the amateur people making money online. And is there a technology out there anywhere on the Internet that can't be used for porn? Okay, that last question was rhetorical. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Lena macete is the producer of the last days of August and the butterfly effect. She's also a producer at this American life. She may be the podcast producer who knows the most about Porn Hello Lena. Hi. How are you? I'm doing really well, and maybe for people who haven't listened to the butterfly effects can you try to describe a how profoundly the porn industry has changed even over say the last five or seven years in how quickly it changes in general? Yeah. I mean it's changed dramatically since we made the butterfly effect which I believe we started reporting on Wiezman, Jon Ronson I was working with the a journalist Jon Ronson on both of those two series that you mentioned and I, believe we started reporting on it in two thousand sixteen and the question we were looking at in the butterfly effect was how has This relatively new access to unlimited porn for free that anyone can access on the Internet. How has that impacted the lives of the actual people making it? and. So basically, there's this company in Montreal. It's called his right now called minded Geek believe at the time it was called mind freak and originally I think it was called man win they run a website called porn hub they actually they own a bunch of streaming websites but they but porn hub for our purposes is like the one we're paying close attention to because it's the most visited porn site it regularly ranks as like one of the top ten most visited websites in America you know beside Google and twitter. And so the the reality of porn in two thousand sixteen is that a lot of it was still being made professionally. So in the US, it's made in Los Angeles in San Francisco in. Las Vegas and in Florida which means people are using budgets to pay actors and directors and sound people to make porn But then that porn is being uploaded illegally, it's being pirated to porn hub. Like Youtube just for porn, which means that the consumer isn't paying for it and the the question we were trying to get the answer to was like. How has it impacted porn people's livelihoods, and basically, what are they doing to make up for lost cash and what did the industry due to adapt to Mine Guiquan and the porn hub model? I mean the answer to that like you're you're right to point out that it's always changing like it's it's always changing to the point that before I got on the phone with you today I called one of the performers that we speak to in butterfly effect just to like catch up on what has happened in the last couple of weeks like it. It really does change all the time at the time the the answer hovered around custom porn, which is still what I would call it cust important. So that's porn that. A consumer can order directly from a performer that they like and often it. It breaks down to poor like basically for someone to reach out to a porn performer and ask them to make video in exchange for like one five, ten, thousand dollars It's because they have a specific kink or there's something they're interested in an otherwise can't find on the Internet and there's billions of hours of porn on the Internet. So when you're when you're to the point where you're looking for custom videos. More often than not is. So specific that like it might only apply like you might be the only person in the world who has the specific proclivity. So a lot of our series focused on custom porn on how like people who are made famous as mainstream porn stars are supplementing their income by making these custom videos

Biden's Agenda for the Black Community with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake

"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. A have a conversation with Mayor Stephanie, Rawlings Bleak Mayor Rawlings Blake served as the forty ninth mayor of Baltimore as she joins me to discuss Biden's agenda for the black community. Now, if you haven't taken a look at Biden's agenda for the black community, you WanNa hear this conversation we discuss this plans to close disparities in homeownership rates within the black community his plans to help close the wealth gap the expansion of the affordable care act and has extensive criminal justice reform plans including employing the Department of Justice to address police accountability, decriminalizing the use of canvas and the automatic expunge -ment of all cannabis use convictions. So. Here's my conversation with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake Mayor Rawlings Blake. Welcome to the PODCAST. So I WANNA talk about Biden's agenda for the black community because I was reading through that and I don't think in my lifetime that I've seen or proposal that's this extensive and targeted towards the black community and I wanted to be fair. So I looked through some other past presidential platforms and a lot of them aren't really archived. You know how he crafted this or you know, did he have help from outside organization or WHO's influencing him on this? The vice principal former Vice President Biden has a theory broad group of. Individuals who have been advising him and who care a lot about making sure that the the Democratic Party is right by a black people as well as he does right by black people when he is very hopefully elected NFC among about. Today's that's right. It's like fifty days or something I think with just kind of makes me nervous nervous excited both at the same time. And he's got economists that have been advising him as well as advocates and I think when you take a look at the plan many aspects of the plan, you see their their fingerprints on it that this is not for show. This is not something that is decorative on a on a website. This is something then can be implemented and we'll have a real impact on our community. Absolutely. Right. I agree with that and when I was just looking at the wording and some of the things that he hits on. Pretty. Deep right in an isn't something I would expect it to see us on the democratic side. You wouldn't see it on the Republican side even on the Democratic side, you know five or ten years ago. So that's something. Yeah. I WANNA go really deeply into every policy proposal, but there are few that I want to hit on some pressings. Building Wealth no health care and criminal justice reform. But. I WANNA start with building wealth because one of the things that he proposes is doubling the funding for the State Small Business Credit Initiative which doubling that to three billion dollars to assist small businesses and targeting specifically people of Color. You don't WanNa talk about the fact that you know that that's great but you know black people I think in the group of people of Color by people are thinker are usually at the bottom in terms of getting capital access to capital for building small businesses because there are other bias and other limitations that we face, we try to start small business you know. So have you actually address that those unique barriers to black people getting capital in starting small businesses? The first thing you do to address the barrier is acknowledged I can't tell you optus pointed I've been to hear our current president deny ignore the disparities that exist or by people in our country as when you start off ahead in the game and you have someone's willing to name it. And to a work to address it in also wanted to bring to your attention. It's not just the the the money for small businesses Biden Harris. Focused on African American women business owners specifically because as you know a, we are the majority of the businesses offices that are being created in the NBA minority community are African American women see address s like I said at first by identifying them and second step by step I I know there's going to need to be mentors are business mentors that are working to help these these small businesses achieve and when you have an administration that is sensitive, you'll be able to do what was done under the Obama Administration where there was a lot of support event to two businesses. You know a lot of those sports have been ripped up by the current administration so A. Definitely identifying the issues and pudding supports in place to close some of those gaps are the essential you're right. So we have to recover from the damage has been done from the current administration, but then you know things like this policies like this have to account for the fact that we're pandemic. I'm a lot of the businesses that by people have owned have probably been hit in hurt quite. A bit. So that's another place to start. Definitely I. Mean I think one of the things you you will hear a line that I've heard a lot. It's not. We're not trying to go back to where we were. You know this is about ripping up be You know the race face inequities that impact the black community across the board and making sure that we are not ignoring you. Know, the problems you've seen,

A Guide To Relationships on Lockdown

"So. You know how we've spent a lot of time these past few months. Talking about everything, the covid nineteen has changed while. There's one big thing that we haven't covered yet. It's sensitive. It's intimate. It's not easy to talk about even when there is no pandemic, it's just messy. It's marriage. And living together and partnership for life with kids or without. If you're married or partnered, you haven't been alone throughout all this and you're lucky, but you've also likely spent the last few months navigating an entirely different landscape, adjusting to a new daily life, and probably fighting at least sometimes. Today, we'll talk about the unique stresses that these and I'm sorry here. Unprecedented Times of placed on couples who pledged to spend their lives together. Just maybe not this close together for this long. We'll talk about how to fight and how to divide household labor how to survive till death do us part, and beyond and I will try not to get myself in trouble at home by saying something dumb. Can I do? We will find at. Jordan he's Rawlings and this is the big story. Stephen Marsh is a writer and a podcast and his new show is called and I'm GonNa say it, and we'll see if the producers me. How not about your marriage too bad? Hi Stephen. How're you doing? I'm doing well. Thank you, I'm going to start because we're GONNA talk about relationships today I'm just going to start by asking you. How has Being together with two kids, homeschooling and working twenty four seven impacted your partnership. You know to be honest, a kind of love it I. Mean Like I'm a freelance writer, so I'm used to being at home alone and so for me. It's sort of like the kids are home from school. There's like a lot of activity in the house and I'm less lonely. That's really that's really the big. The big change I think it's a little harder for my wife to be stuck with me the. The whole time, and certainly it's you know certainly to be my fourteen year old son in be stuck with your parents for the indefinite future without being able to go to camp or anything like that is a bit of a nightmare. I mean you know. I think were were kind of lucky. Because like whenever wherever covid goes like divorce, rates spike like in Wuhan the bureaucracies just totally overwhelmed with divorce. applications the sames happening in Italy It's a classic relationship accelerator so single. Single people who were you know at home? Confronting Death by themselves unable to touch anyone are like desperate to get married and people who are married or like I need to get the hell out of here. You know it kind of it kind of works both ways on people. Do you remember at the beginning of this? When people were saying? Oh, there's GonNa be a covert baby-boom. Then everybody with kids said well. If there is, it's going to be all only children, Yeah I. I mean it's like the hormonal effective covert I. Don't think has really been written about, but like I I mean I knew there would not be covid baby boom. There were there were stories. I mean. You've heard stories. The early days of people who'd been on three dates shacking up that cannot work out well, so tell me about this podcast which recorded pre pandemic, but is being released now in the middle of one. What has cova done to the subjects you discuss on the podcast? It seems like it must have just put more pressure on all of them. Well, yeah, I mean. It's very interesting because you know not to be too glib about it, but the time like the timing of the release could not be better because you know the questions that we deal with in this show like. You know the physiological basis of fighting like. How do you fight better like suddenly? This becomes very very important to people who are jammed together all the time. How do you deal with money together? This is also about going to become very very important for a huge number of marriages how to deal with death how to think through divorce. Should, you schedule sex? How do you deal with housework? And suddenly all of these questions which we were dealing with which matter you know in the best of times suddenly, they've all come very much to the fore the it's the old questions I don't think the questions have really changed. Just their urgency has and I'm going to get you to. Well give me some of the advice you get to in the podcast and the listeners to because I'm sure we could all use it right now, but I. You mentioned at the very beginning that you think it's been great for you to be at home in also have company my honest question to you is Would your wife? Would Sarah say the same thing? No, I don't think so I think she you know she. She's a more social person. It's not really a marriage question. She likes being in an. An office she likes being with other people. She likes that space quite a bit and be denied it I. Think is actually pretty pretty rough. You know also there's the question of we. We have to educate our children and do our jobs at the same time, which is hugely stressful and really frankly not possible. Yeah. I think for me a freelance writer. Where like you? You find me in my office where I am every where I've been every day for fifteen years like tied to this table in the tower of song. It's not. It's not really that different for me, but for her. It's huge. What have you guys thought about during this pandemic I know you've fought i. you know what I think. I can't even remember the subject I. Mean I know that sounds like a capo, but I definitely have fought, but you know the subjects are really irrelevant. Because what were you know when when we did the fighting episode? One thing I learned was that you know fighting is now. Now is not really about issues. It's not about the problems in your marriage, and certainly never helps to solve those problems It's really a physiological response to Stimuli. It's about when you're when you're intimate with someone. Your brain naturally looks for threat and that and naturally response to threat and when you do that, you're you know the tends to build on itself very very quickly, and you know the conditions of covid really are the conditions that make us all. Very intimate suddenly and. Without escape, and so it's natural that you're going to have more fights is just. It's just part of your body. It's just basically a physical reaction, so yeah, we've had some raiders, but I don't think they've like. The subject matter is kind of irrelevant. So how do you fight better the topic of a whole episode? Yeah I mean it's complicated like I. Don't want to reduce it to a one point because you know like. We talked to Stanton. WHO's very famous neurobiologist and we talked to cloudy Hasso. Who'd who does like lifetime studies, couples, and how they fight, and how it affects their bodily reactions to? Overtime and you know they have. They have a lot of collective insights into it, but I mean I. Think the real the point the takeaway for me anyway like fighting is not an intellectual process. You're not going to solve any issue that you have through fighting. You're not even going to address. It and so the really when you get into a fight, which is natural. It's it's inevitable. There's no escape from that the. The health even to fight. The point is to get jet to safety as quickly as possible. What does that mean get to? Safety means to make your partner feel like their loved rather than threatened, and you know the simple ways to do that are just to look each other in the is for about thirty seconds, or just to leave and run and do a silly dance, or do something physical to get out the energy. And just returned to a where you feel like you like your your interest or mutual again. just get to that place as quickly as possible because you know, the other way just expands forever. Don't you not fix the shoes by doing that though? But you never fix an issue by fight. I mean there's no you will not find anyone like. That was the point. That's what I learned like. You Talk to these people and you're in there and they're like well. Don't you need to have fights in order to solve problems in lake? Well, no fight has ever solved a problem and I I thought about it. In my own case I've been married for nearly twenty years and I was like. Yeah, you're right. I mean like the way you solve a problem by sitting down calmly with a glass of wine and talking things through and being frank and honest about it, and we're and we're talking to a therapist or D- But. That's not fighting. Like. That's not that's not that's not. The fighting is just response to Stimuli. What about just living together in general, which is another topic of one of the episodes first of all I guess. What did you discover that either? You've been just doing wrong? The whole time or wish you'd known before you lived with your partner. Well I mean one thing I learned I sort of. Of knew already had written about before in the unmade bed is that there are no solutions to the problems of living together like the there, there is no magic bullet you think think when you're when you're a kid. When I was a kid, I thought Oh will drop contracts, and it'll make it all simple, and then we'll. We're reasonable people. We both believe in equality. We both want. Want to do the same things, and and and we and we don't want. We don't WanNA fight about dumb stuff like who's cleaning the toilet and stuff like that, so we'll make up a list, but that's not actually how it works at all. It's much more emotionally driven, and it's much more about the quest for recognition, and the truth is those matters just like never really get solved. Solved so then you then you come to the place of Lake Well. How do you? How do you deal with that irresolution I? Mean that is the one thing that I really learned from doing this show is that marriage is quite hard You know look. I wasn't an idiot I. knew people were in pain in their relationships, but I. Guess I kind of thought that they were. Met screwing things up, or they had their own problems or something like that, it's like no actually doing this is actually quite difficult, and it requires a lot of endurance, and it requires a lot of skill and tenderness, and it also requires a lot of luck, and so that's I. You know that was the that was kind of the takeaway for me like you know. This is actually a lot harder than you think. Yeah. You realize now that we're two men now talking about housework, right? You don't know how. Yeah, no, and it's really. I'M GONNA. Get in trouble for this, and so are you yeah? and. Also maybe we should be doing it like. Let's also take that into account, but anyway go on one of the reasons why I wanted to talk to you and to talk about this is because I think it often falls on. the woman in a marriage to to try to fix the marriage, and to try to have those emotional discussions and try to bring those topics up so I think like. Yes obviously There are probably things that we're going to get wrong and screw up by having this conversation. It shouldn't be left to wives to make the husband go to counseling and to initiate these conversations, and you know to try to save the marriage, so so that's what I'd say that but I. Wanted to ask you about recognition because I find when there are inequalities, it is the recognition that makes the difference between a fight and no fight. It's not necessarily the active. Okay. Well, you take the garbage out five days a week and I'll take the. I'll do the dishes five days a week and etc. It's the lake. I see you taken garbage out. That's awesome. Well. That's the getting to safety. Part of fighting. Getting to safety is like that feeling like I'm seen in you, know me and were together right, and so you always want to get to that as quickly as possible, but you know I mean I'm on the record like my about housework like my feeling about it is that? Every like everyone should do a lot less of it, and that the the long term trend with housework is not men doing more where it gets women. Doing less has been that. That's true everywhere in Western Europe North America. It's called disinvestment in some well known sociological category you know. My mother was a fulltime physician who also vacuumed the the drapes of our house lake. That's not it quickly realized. That's no longer possible, and but that whole debate around what housework is it so fascinating but it's also almost impossible to have rationally like it's it it it becomes. It becomes super emotional and. Layered with with norms so quickly, you know it's it's almost impossible to have those conversations. In general, although I definitely agree with you, that men do not do their fair share of trying to make marriage is work or Thinking through their marriages right, I mean like I, I think there's this this thing with men were they don't WanNa even consciously try and conceive of these questions they want to just push them aside and get on with things and I think that's really bad and dangerous and stupid and just stupid like there's there's ways to think through this stuff that are very can really improve your life and can improve your marriage, and they're not hippie nonsense, right and the and they're not you know snake oil salesmen stuff they're. They're quite practical. I WanNa, talk to you, but a couple of. Of the other episodes that we can may be covering somewhat rapid fire succession associated. You schedule Sex. What what are the experts say? Yes, I mean you know in this show we take all these questions and we we try get multiple perspectives on them, and you know definitely different perspectives and see how we feel about them. We literally could not find a single expert who said don't schedule sex. They all say schedule sex because you know the simple truth is. If you don't, you won't have it and you know the other thing is if you get to once a week. that is the equivalent in happiness terms of going from making twenty five thousand dollars a year to making seventy five thousand dollars a year so i. don't know about you, but when I went from that from twenty five to seventy five K that was like the most happiness that was the greatest increase of happiness that I could have so yeah. You do absolutely that one you know most. Most of these things, there's no AB testing for most the stuff, so you know most of the things we don't have as definitive answers that to these questions, but that one is a pretty straight. Yes, how about deciding who to marry? That's I haven't listened to that episode yet, but really fascinating. We talked to a a matchmaker traditional matchmaker who charges ten thousand dollars for a? A relationship and we also talked to a WHO works at NASA Jet Propulsion Lab. Who as a sideline has developed as algorithm for determining when you should settle essentially and so like we look at the math of you know. How do you pick basically and not nothing works I? Mean that's the that's the sad answer, but like when you get to when you get to like trust, trust your. Your gut doesn't make any sense, but also trust. The numbers doesn't make any sense I. Mean I think that's kind of a lesson in itself. When you're picking this, you're doing it with. It's very partial information game. It's an asymmetrical information game and you have to know that when you get married. You're taking a big risk. What about should we just get divorced? How do you make that call? Yet, there's a whole group again. See. This is the kind of thing that I think that there. There's a kind of practical. There's practical solutions to this like there's a whole group of scholars divorce ideation out there from various different political beliefs and very leg. They study how people get divorced, and I mean about forty percent of people in divorce proceedings. Regret it in court really. You know the lesson here is divorce is a wonderful thing. It's kind of the key. People underrate the power of divorce like divorce is key to modern life as In freedom of the press its that important because it means that we're not locked in these terrible relationships like there is a way out and super important for human liberty, but at the same time you won't understand that if you're thinking about divorce. Especially coming out a covert I, think take it slowly like to take take your time to do it because people get divorced for his bad reasons as they get married rate for emotional reasons that are really temporary, and they don't really think through and yeah like divorce slowly. The last one I want to ask you about is pretty profound marriage death especially now when you know probably number of long term, marriages have lost a partner. How does marriage survived death? In what is that look like you know we talked to? That was a very powerful episode. You know it was. It was a sign of its success that no one who dealt with it could actually get through the whole thing without stopping and crying like our executive producer couldn't edit it like had to keep stopping. The sound designer couldn't really get through it. He kept crying. I. Mean it's your worst nightmare. Anybody who's married well I don't know I think they're i. think are much worse things that can happen in a marriage actually certainly after doing this show, but I think the You know that we talked to a woman who texts her dead husband like three years after the thing that's so interesting is that the relationship doesn't really end. We talked to all these people for whom including my mother for whom they're dead. Spouse, you know. The fact of his death was just kind of one more fact in the relationship, and the relationship went right on. It's just without one person, and so you know what this show is really about the difficulties of marriage, which can be grueling like the housework, the money problems the sex problems like all this stuff, but that show really showed like it is worth fighting for like it is actually worth trying to work out because it can be incredibly powerful in life life-affirming. What did you learn about? Marriage is an institution and a concept while making a show well, it's very It's not natural. When we did the show about parenting leagues, the thing that we kept returning to the kept coming back was like love your children and express your love for them, which is actually kind of the most natural thing in the world really late. That's not a tall order, but with. Marriage even the best couples, even the luckiest couples. The most compatible couples are going to struggle. Because because it is, it is not a natural arrangement. It's not built into our biology to do this, and and so that means it's doesn't mean that it's not worth doing, and it doesn't. The institution isn't powerful. Because in some ways it's never been more powerful than it is right now, but on the other hand I like it does require a lot of effort and a lot of endurance. My last question is just did this podcast the process of making it make you a better husband, and as a follow up like I, asked before. Would your wife agree with that I? Know? Did and I I know she would agree with it for sure. You know I, think just the the fighting episode was a really big one. Where it's just like you realize like actually, there's no point doing this. If you really WanNa change, things like have a serious conversation about them. Don't get into these screaming matches that. End Up just backtracking on and nothing ever happens like and you know there was something there was some very serious sort of I mean not very serious, but I am medium sized family crisis and in the middle of doing this podcast, and because I did the show I was really quite a bit calmer than I think I would have been before i. was just like you know what it's like. I feel threatened, but don't, but it's just. It's just physiological. Just just let it go. Just let it go, and you think about it when you're when when sanity is returned I'm going to remember that advice when Rosemary gets mad at me possibly while listening to this episode. Well I. Mean I think one thing that's really important like you really realize that how much pop culture and media assumptions about marriage of created this impression like it's i. mean it's happily ever after whatever and it's just. It's nonsense I. Mean we all know it's nonsense, but you the figuring out how this works involves a lot of effort. It's hard to admit that to yourself that. That it's all nonsense, yeah, I think I think it's really shoved down our throats, and then we don't ask ourselves these questions like I. I actually assumed doing this I. Mean it's weird to think but I was like a forty year old man who thought that married people had sex three times a week. And then I talk to an expert and they're like no joking like. And it was like right. Of course, of course that kind infer even basic information is not really available even to married people. You're kind of just left alone to deal with it, and there's no reason not to know. There's no reason to be ignorant. Stephen Thank you so much for this and I look forward to listen to the rest of the show. That was pleasure. Give give my best rosemary.

Outside is closed!: Whats COVID-19 doing to kids in the long run?

"Outside is closed. That's being. My daughters. Go to phrase for the past three months. Outside not totally closed anymore of course, and now that the weather's nice. We want her out there. We want her running around and playing in the backyard, and exploring the neighborhood and just being kit. But sometimes she refuses, and then she says it and I wonder how long that phrase will stick around even when we get back to normal I'm not the only one wondering staff and the experts are worried. On Wednesday, the hospital for sick children issued a report. It recommends that children be allowed back to school in September even though it acknowledges the virus won't be radical by them. It says that the risks of infection and transmission in children have to be balanced with the effect that closed. Schools are having on kids, physical and mental health. And that's the worry that I keep coming back to and I suspect many parents feel the same way. What do we know about the long term impacts of kids being yanked out of school isolated from their friends for months on end. How does that? Impact kids at different ages and in different situations, and how to researchers even attempt to study this. What don't we know right now? About the long term impacts of covert on kids, and what will be likely, find out in the years to come as the Kovic. Generation grows up. Jordan Rawlings. This is the big story. Sir Mr Superman is an editor at large at mcleans at large right now. I guess means at home with the kid I saw. A LOW Jordan. Why don't you start because we're going talk? About the long term? Impacts that we know and don't know about cove and kids. But why don't you just start by telling me what we do? Know and what we've learned over the past few months about what? This virus does two kids, so we do know some things. It's a confusing picture even with the things that we know, but the things that we know are that most kids don't seem to get sick from it when they do get sick from it if they're if they test positive at infections tend to be milder, the symptoms tend to be milder. So? That's what we do. Know We don't really fully understand why it doesn't affect kids. There were theories floating around early on research out that show that there were. Particular features of young immune systems that handled the virus differently. But there's now a range of research showing very different conclusions. Their studies that show that. Children don't translate the virus at all. Their studies that show children transmit the virus worse than other people, Children Research, showing the children transmit the virus, but a slower rate not much as as adults, so it's a pretty mixed picture between what we do, know in what we don't know. And in the meantime we're kind of stumbling around in the dark with kids at home. Not knowing what that's doing to them with doing to them, and then the last thing that I would add about the things that we know. Is that a couple of months ago? There were these terrifying reports out of hospitals in New York. Children afflicted Very rare that kids who either test positive for Co, bitter or or test positive for Kobe antibodies meaning they've had at some point in the past show these symptoms, but there are symptoms associated with a very dangerous syndrome that. It's causing. Oregon shut down in kids, heart failure, and so on. It's extremely extremely rare, but as a mother who wrote about the experience. For The Washington Post. Put it. It's rare until it's your child. And you know all of that stuff. as parents is terrifying, especially, because there's so much, we don't know, but even that is relatively concrete compared to I. Guess what we know about. How this is actually impacting kids beyond the itself in terms of like physical and mental health. Yes, exactly I mean the virus itself does not affect kids in great numbers, as does the elderly for instance, but the measures that have been put in place to. To flatten the curve and to stem the spread of the virus, affect kids in very particular ways and as every parent who has a child or children at home. That the measures are hard at everybody, but there particularly hard on young people who are trying to navigate various developmental milestones in stages in their lives, depending on how old they are, it's pandemic. That is quite unprecedented in the last century in the last hundred years, and so we don't really have all that much research that shows for instance what what it might do long-term to a child. There's just a lot that we won't know until we start to come out of this and start to. See The impact on kids and refrain that I heard repeatedly in that I kind of. Sensed just from talking to kids and talking to parents is that it will probably vary quite a lot from child to child. We and I'm going to ask you about some of the reporting an interviews that you've done but I just as as a mom I guess and I kind of mentioned this about myself as apparent in the intro. Do you what? What's your sense on? How profoundly this is going to impact kids how how much they'll remember of this. Will it be something that sticks with them as they? Turn eighteen as they turned thirty I, suspect it will be in the first month, or so I tried to get my my son to keep a diary in. I tried to get him to write down impressions because I thought Oh, this will be this thing that he will look back on the strange period in his early life, and it'll be this blip as the pandemic continues in his measures. Put in place you know some of the lifted now, but there's always this hovering threat of a second wave, and the possibility that we will return to some form of of pandemic measures in lockdown measures. I A starting to have the very real sense that this may not just be a blip. Oh, five or six weeks that happened at one time that it may be something that that stays with kids. I don't think it's necessarily all doom and gloom in the way that it stays with children. I went into the story. Concerned about things like anxiety, mental health, and so on, and and some of the effects that I heard about those researchers, and for the kids that I talked to. surprised me. There were there were benefits and some of that I see in my own child's life, and he seems mostly happy. He missed the school and he misses friends, and he misses being able to have normal contact physical contact with people. But he's done things. My my my son in the last three months that he never done before he rides his bike down. A downtown Toronto Street right in the middle of the street. He scooters around unsupervised and so in some ways it. Reminds me of my own childhood. Growing up in India in neighborhoods that didn't have a lot of cars in them and kids were just playing on the street. What's it like? Talking to kids about this because you, you didn't just talk to your own son. You interviewed a whole bunch of kids at various ages I did yes, I think the younger youngest child that I talked to was six or seven seven and. The oldest young person I talked to was eighteen, and it's really easy to talk to the kids about what their lives are like, and and how they feel about this time, because for most of them, the coronavirus doesn't actually Lou mauled at large. They don't think about it as this terrifying. Thing lots of the younger

What does Defund The Police mean today, tomorrow and next year? What other options are there?

"I'd be willing to bet that the phrase abolish. The police gets a reaction from you. Whether it's a sarcastic, scoff or an enthusiastic cheer I don't know. But it's provocative and that's the point. It sounds total. What about De Fund the police? Maybe. That's a little more palatable, but do you know what it means? Right now Paul say that a majority in both Canada and the United States oppose it at least as a slogan. What about stuff like bias, training and body cameras? Those things have lots of port. We also have lots of research that says they don't actually reform much. So something's gotTa give move. There is vast support and energy right now for real police reform. Nearly all of us agree that police brutality and racism is a huge problem that needs meaningful action. So what happens? What would abolishing or defunding police? Departments actually look like today tomorrow next year five years from now. How can reform advocates get the proper message across to the general public who are spooked by these slogans? And is there anything else something in the middle between superficial measures and massive reform? That could help right now. What can we actually do? To start fixing this. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings? This is the big story. Monica Bell is an associate professor of law and sociology at Yale and she's going to help explain some of the concepts that are floating around right now hello Monica. Our you I'm very well. Thank you and I'm hoping to wrap my mind around some of the proposals right now for reforming police forces in America but also in Canada to. Why don't we start just by talking a little bit about what is being proposed a? How varied are some of the demands and requests and things being proposed even by mayors of cities, yeah, so the Bulls are extremely varied proposals ranging from probably. Probably the one that's gotten most air time a defunding dismantling than there are also proposals that sound a lot more like things we've heard in the past like body cameras is one that is still being opposed a new by some a mayors and police chiefs are there also reforms being proposed like additional training and Tobias Training and procedural justice, training among certain police departments, so it's really a the full, the full range of proposals. Both new and old are being discussed in this firm moment. Let's start with the most aggressive one and we'll get to de-fund the police in a minute because I gather. That's really complicated, but we've also heard calls to a rate of the police and when people say that, what do they mean and in a world like that? What would replace them? So I WANNA start by making really clear that I don't think I can speak on behalf of the Abolition Movement sure for for many reasons. I think you know I've been reading myself about The calls for prison abolition for about four years, but there are people who've been working on these topics for decades so I, just WanNa acknowledge that, so I think there is a range there's a very wide range of people who call themselves abolitionists right now and so some of those people for some of the I would wager a bear small minority that means dismantling the police right now I think most people who identifies the abolitionists. Would say something else, which is that we should be working toward a world in which we don't need. We don't imagine ourselves needing police prisons, the changing make right now on could lead toward a world in which we use the police less, or it could lead to a world in which we use the police more so as much more about what you imagine as the in point of reform in less about. What we should do. In this current moment so on, and there's a lot of writing that underpins that particular perspective and I think one of the one of the reasons, the conversation by abolitionist really complicated is. In the public discourse people here, wow, abolish the police that sounds outrageous timbre. because. Of course we don't. We're not in a situation where we can actually get rid of the police right now of everywhere. In part because. We don't have alternative institutions that do anything about the crime in safety concerns that people have and those are real right I mean there are you know. People are subjected to violence every day. We need some sort of response to that and so right now the only response we can imagine in the only response that has resources really are are the police. The prisons in the entire kind of criminal legal conflicts like that's what we have on everywhere, but actually you know a lot of the. Literature, on abolition has much has much more embrace of incremental approaches to getting to an end point,

I'm saying that doesn't mean I. Don't need you to get in the line. You know what I'm saying. I don't need you to donate money, but like you WanNa feel that. There's some capacity and you feel like this is fucked up. We can move from that. We can grow from that and I. Want you to get involved with like I. said the Civil Rights Need I said on. In the sixties the worst thing. Called a nigger. Was! Being, called a nigger lover. That was worse. nigger lover. Year, you chose that. You chose that you chose that love. But also said. The civil rights movement. Needed Nicholas. The needed Nikoloz needed freedom fighters. They needed those Peace Corps bits and the reason why I need up. I said I needed because who was going to get the fucking marched permits. You know what I'm saying. A black do couldn't go to. Donate. Tyrol! What are you want tire on? Who those people behind you. Is that trump posse. I need a march permit. Go. Look at the ring. Look at the ring, but that says littering said he wants a monster permit. Adam Churchill. We need here, you go. So what I'm saying is that. Anybody that's dillon with. You talk about how you feel about. This justice is fucked up if you are not ready to get involved with politics, do you're marching for no fucking rees right because that's the thing that's going to change voting in voting census signing up for the sense counted getting getting involve voting would. In the census when you, Fogel elections and federal election everything you know what I'm saying monthly because you know month for like I'm just going to vote in the general election, but you you you have to. You have to get involved and we have to come together. We have to make it not just one race problem, but everybody's problem. The unity is was going to motherfucking.

Read it you got. Really. Didn't even? You. Don't hear anything about it. Tom Hanks have like. Certain people have to be involved before mother focused start thinking differently, and what is the role that the pandemic catch played in this moment you talked a little bit earlier about is made it more stressful because I mean don't forget I mean there's a large majority of African. Americans are essential workers, but I will tell you what one thing it feels like. This fucking shit is gone on with. This killing of this unarmed blackout. is making us feel like. Maybe. Corona was a hoax. Because it some no mask, Weren no social distancing practicing motherfuckers out there. Like, I noticed sounds crazy. And that's really the danger of people are so into. They're not even taking precautions for their safety and their and their health now corona is still out there. And Muffins don't give a shit and most reaction. I showed you a video of a couple. White Girls looting starbucks and writing black lives, matter and a black woman. Saying please don't do this. They'RE GONNA blame us for this of I commend. Those black ships would not beat the shit out of them, and that's another thing. They knew how to separate their rage. You know what? What I'm saying like I know, you laughed about there, but it could have been like your fucking white as Dan. Fuck you up. They were smart enough to fall back from catch him. But that's another thing about this thing that you know. All these people are starting to should. They had example of a cop and Minnesota that was at autozone, bus and windows open to create the. Illusion that of Ryan already started and make them go India. Is going to be some people that they can be smart about this. How do we feel this? How do we feel this? Bill that are right that are exacerbating this and you know. so it's really sort of like a very fine line. You know and I'm going to read something that someone posted. That's being shared a lot, which is before posting a Selfie picture of what you're eating for dinner or your friends by pool. Remember the doing so actively acknowledges that you have the freedom and the time to care about other things outside the urgent fight for racial justice, so be careful about what you're choosing to stay in the space right now and ask. Ask Yourself. Could this real estate I'm about to occupy the Internet be better suited for something more helpful. Dan Levy posted that and you know what if that's the? That's the truth of Winnie. Like I'm not saying what I'm not saying, we need you. I'm not sending book and didn't and that was irritating about some of my friends. Now like you use your platform for everything you know you you know is not just comedy is certain. Issues are the closer you. WanNa talk about. For. This issue is I want to stay away from him and lies mugs because they're afraid to lose some. They're afraid to lose. Something and people don't WanNA stand for Shit. Anymore money. Is the devil.

Because they're afraid to lose, they're afraid to lose I'm always to me at this point. If you're silent, you're standing for something just there if You are I. Don't give a fuck. You are speaking really with your silence, and not only in this. You have some people just don't speak on anything. You know what I'm saying, but do you got Taylor? Swift spoke up.

Why I had day to day been cool blacks I did been cool. And I never, but it was for me. Before US entertain her and when I used to kick white chicks, whatever smashing whatever? I always thought this was. My thing always thought like yeah. I'm having fun on connect whatever but always thought. Sus It was somethin' debt were block us from taking to next level. Because I think the toughest loves you can have. Is A interracial love, and on and on and on. Acting in gay and gala. Because, it's not well now. It's a different thing, but it was one of them. Is Not supposed to be like that? This isn't the way it is. Not Be accepted my family want appreciate it and all that type of stuff Jonah legal is legal. A whole bunch of Shit was always something. We're always hours felt like it was something it'll be like this. Okay, that's the reason and I'm out run know, but when I did it her. None of that matter. And another reason was so wd because. At the time I was starting to get some. Success in business. Right. And she had a John was. She was overseas. and. I was popping off disappear show. She didn't know that she was never continent. She didn't notice. It should play a lot of TV's or anything. And I remember we're going out. We're out one day them. I want to bathroom and gas gasket on hovering around mounted bathroom. I came back. And One of the guys sit here. Do you know that his. Issues like no, who is it? Right. She, and that was kind of connect 'cause it wasn't like she was kicking away because I was asked Larry being like she. Had A connection. She had a key connect me so I know when I was when we were dating. It was genuine. Mean another reason because she was from a wealthy family to.

The career path she chose or was. It just didn't make sense. You know what I'm saying. I was comedian she was in was like day. Just totally opposite.

You know it's like yes, it was real eight nine hill. I'm doing this year doing that you on this coast to coast. I love you, but it just doesn't make sense. Shannon was just it was mature. It wasn't trying to find somebody. Did you last the reader I'm Outta here? You know what I mean. It wasn't. It was on his in you know. She went on. She married return. All and cheese has. I think I'm asking because I this is the first time I'm really seeing the black women I follow posting about just because you're dating black man. Does it mean you're not racist and bringing that up is so uncomfortable, and but because Muslims people they want you. They want to feel like no. She has to be but like. And it's not the discredit my black sisters or anything like that, but I don't understand, is that. You know! Everybody can have a heart. You know but a lot of black women if you like. But once something happens that bits be gone. Oh, she just want him for his money. Would have you deal with a fucking Richmond the break-up? It ain't just like old white chase going just get money.

"Runs on as far as the what's going on or how it does look like this is something that Rawlings yes improved in their their manufacturing process they've done this for ages like there there on the record even without the homeland committee talking about how they can help improve manufacturing of all over time and it looks like in this case what they did with something in the finishing process yes he was drying the baseball who probably easier to just read the article for that but it by drying the baseball slightly differently they're ending up with the ball that is staying around our and as part of that it's probably also forcing the laces to stay lower so we've got a ball that's completely different than anything we've ever seen before there's no precedent for this car's wheels is there any way that the the teams themselves the pictures can doctor the baseball to make it feel like the normal baseball what they were using before because we talk about blisters mean guys can lose money and guys lose time because of blisters and also because the baseball does it just doesn't feel right in their hands well there have been some reports about guys you know actually using ain't gonna front screen or whatever to arise and to to to doctor the ball to get a better grip I think your number I'm open Jim Kaat saying that this was it is against the rules by he said that it was being you know people were turning a blind eye specifically because control has been such an issue that by virtue of them you know using a substance on the ball it's making it safer for the haters because otherwise you're much more likely to have the hit by catching because the Fisher can't control the ball because it's just too slick and the laces RC and things aren't high enough so as far as that yeah that's helping with the grant I have actually heard from a major league pitcher debt there are new blister issues because you guys are being forced to birth differently I basically don't don't have their fingernails and again and when they like that what pulls away the fingernail of that never had that happen it's horrible and painful so that there does seem to be another problem for pictures outside you know as far as the grip as far as that getting a sedan so you actually get break but you know it's it's if the new ball so far picture seems to be compensating in whatever way they can spinning company were talking to doctor Meredith wells contributor for the athletic who is studying the different baseballs in the sport and how they're affecting home run levels it felt like the commissioner was sort of shrugging this off Manford saying that Rawlings hasn't changed their process or their materials in any meaningful way meanwhile buster only telling baseball tonight listeners that he spoke drawings and they said that they are actively experimenting with baseball construction so is somebody lying and does anyone care because baseball sure feels like the one place where people care the most about old historic numbers and if the ball is the reason for the change in numbers I feel like people would be pretty angry about it well I I think the key word in that state and its meaning eight because if you look at how Rawlings has done things in the past they will freely admit to changing the ball all the time the question is is it considered a close meaningful change now it looks like all they did was do what was a very small change in that finishing her drying process I've been in it analogy would be it would be like they took a blow dryer to baseball and that seems to have done so if all if that's all you're thinking about okay we turn on a blow dryer and that doesn't seem like a a meaningful change through the process or the materials.
